DescriptionThis community trail starts at the Coaster Poinsettia Station & runs south near/along the RR tracks to Batiquitos Lagoon. Access the trail at the south end of the station parking lot. About 1/2 mile down the trail you'll want to take a right through a low chain link gate to continue running south along the tracks (look for the RV storage area behind the wall on the left as a point of reference for the gate on your right. If the trail turns left, you've missed the gate!). You'll run alongside the tracks for another 1/4-1/2 mile, then can pick up a paved section of trail, or stay on soft surface closer to the tracks. Train station to staircase is about 1.25 miles. Take the staircase up, cross Avenida Encinas (low traffic road) and go down another staircase to continue on the community trail & add ~1 mile more along cliff above Batiquitos Lagoon.
